Recognizing Excellence

We are the global house of prestige beauty, committed to delivering excellence to consumers around the world. Consumers trust our products to deliver superior beauty performance, safely and sustainably. We combine creativity, innovation and science with high-quality ingredients and exacting standards to create exceptional products.

Our work would not be possible without the efforts of thousands of suppliers and partners, large and small, who share our commitment to excellence. “We aim to develop long-lasting, trusting and mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers who share our strong values and who demonstrate the same commitment to operating responsibly and ethically,” says William P. Lauder, Executive Chairman.

To demonstrate the value of these relationships and to promote an environment of continuous improvement and innovation, we conduct an annual Supplier Excellence program that recognizes key suppliers, collaborators and innovators from around the globe who partner with The Estée Lauder Companies in delivering excellence in prestige beauty.

Program Highlights

Suppliers are recognized by us for their excellence in a number of categories:

  • Operating Performance
  • Packaging Innovation
  • Sustainability
  • Agility

In order to be considered for an award, suppliers must first meet all Company commercial and regulatory requirements. Suppliers must also maintain exceptional ratings in on-time delivery and quality, while providing a high level of service in project management. Recommendations for the awards are a collaboration of multiple functions including Procurement, Packaging, Quality, Research and Development, Product Development, Materials Management and Sustainability. A leadership steering committee makes the final selection.
